Internet sensation fuels speculation on his UFC fate
Las Vegas, NV (USA) – The much-anticipated two-hour finale of Season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter® airs tonight at 9pm ET on Spike and the world will learn which two fighters will compete for the six-figure UFC contract at The Pearl at The Palms Casino Resort this Saturday night. Of equal importance, millions will tune in to learn the fate of Internet legend and knockout artist Kimbo Slice.
The subject of much debate since joining The Ultimate Fighter® in September, Slice has attracted audiences far and wide, all eager to learn more about the bearded 35-year-old. Most are asking the same question of tonight’s broadcast: will Slice get another opportunity to fight on the show?
With the sports world buzzing about the Miami, FL resident’s future inside the OctagonTM, Slice spoke Tuesday and offered brief insight about his time on the show, as well as what lies ahead.
“If I had to do the show again, I would,” Slice said. “I learned a lot about myself and got to work with some great fighters. Now it’s time for the next step in my career. Everyone will see what that is tonight on Spike.”
When asked to elaborate, the man who owns wins over UFC veteran Tank Abbott and former PRIDE fighter James Thompson, was a little more revealing.
“It’s gonna be good,” Slice said with a grin. “Watch the show tonight. You’ll see what’s next for me. All I can say is that somebody’s getting knocked out.
“Everybody knows what my stronghold is,” Slice continued, clenching his fist. “People will be able to see me and judge for themselves.”
